It might be what circles, we traveled in,and where we are ( southern Orange County for me ) , that affects the awareness, and regard for certain acts . I recall a fairly musical guy, from the Midwest , arguing that Grand Funk was a better band than the Allman Brothers . All the acts I mentioned, I like/love and think are important musically, and historically . It is just odd which of them are still known and which are obscure .
TYA, while not in the rank of the artists I mentioned, did get those few songs played on early 70's FM, and anyone who owned the Woodstock album, knew that "Going Home" , you posted . They are one of the Bands that got good milage from Woodstock, while, our boys, had a rough time of it .
Donavan, early Floyd , yes definitely overlooked ; I would like to add Traffic to that list . I am always surprised how few people I met know their music .

Record producers have a way of mucking in the affairs of established artist. When traffic lost Chris Wood, it left the band ripe for poaching, A new label like Island records come along , flash big cash in front of Winwood then all of a sudden Jim Capaldi who ?

Maybe that statement failed to include the feud between Dave Mason and Steve, One wanting psychadelia the other pop driven folk. Winwood has been Back in the high life since.
